Mountain Lake Resort + Things to Do During Your Stay

Because summer is not yet over, that’s why when my friend Karla invited me on a weekend getaway to Laguna, I said YES right away.  Well, in 2015 I had a quick visit at Mountain Lake Resort through Cavinti Eco-Adventure Tour and knowing that I am going to stay for a night and experience its offerings, I was ecstatic to be part of this trip despite of an early call time.

After three hours on the road via Rizal route, I was greeted with Mountain Lake Resort’s scenic view – surrounded by lush green sight, nestled beside Caliraya Lake with an astounding view of Mount Banahaw. Well, it is a living proof of “where nature meets adventure” wherein guest can enjoy the best of both worlds. So right after having a hearty breakfast, we headed to the section of the resort where the Boat Houses are located.





    We stayed at the Boat House, an accommodation with a twist of floating boathouse designed for people who are looking for adventure – a nipa hut floating by the lake – just like me and my roomie Effie of theposhtravelers.com. An air-conditioned accommodation, equipped with mini fridge, TV, and where basic necessities such as bottled water and toiletries were provided. Surprisingly, I had a sound sleep and woke up with a wonderful view right in front of our queen-sized bed and just by the balcony, we’re able to do fishing.

    Though, accommodation is not limited to boat house, you can have an option of Amihan Cottages, ideal for big groups as it can accommodate 4-10 persons. Rooms are non-air conditioned though but since it is using “kubo” / nipa hut, reassured that ultimate relaxation could be yours. Its location is a one-stop-spot for all outdoor activities.

Glad, that we did fishing at the balcony of our boat house. Did I catch? Hmmm… I must say, it needed a lot of patience. But in any case, that I’ll be staying for 3 days or more, definitely, I could catch one or more. ha-ha.
